Ensure a good start to your University studies by preparing with the Summer Module Courses. We have a few limited spaces for students who are not attending York University this fall. Delivered online from July 20 to August 24th, 2020, we have developed a program to help students feel more confident about starting university this fall, regardless of where they attend university.
The five-week summer modules will help you sharpen the knowledge required for first year university study in the following topics:
- The University Experience
Taught by full-time York University instructors, each five-week summer module course (SMC) covers core material in that subject. The fifth module, “The University Experience” will offer strategies for success in a North American university setting. Students will have the opportunity to discuss material and chat with other students, as well as gain a feel for the university class experience.
The Program offers at least three hours of live, online, discussion each week with instructors as well as receiving practice assignments and quizzes to provide quick feedback on how they have mastered the topics.
These non-credit university readiness courses are intended for you to consolidate your learning, not worry about grades. As a result, you will not need to worry about your marks because they will not be recorded on a university record. We want you to focus on your learning and only use assessments as guides to your understanding of the material.
Students can enroll in an individual module or as a comprehensive group of modules that work together. They are scheduled so that no live sessions will overlap, allowing you to attend all sessions or just the few that you have chosen.
The cost for each module will be CDN$305.20 (CDN$300 plus a CDN $5.20 transaction fee). Registrations will be open from Monday, June 8, 2020 until Friday, July 17, 2020, inclusive. Please note that although registrations close as of July 17th there are a very limited number (50) of spaces available. Please register early to avoid disappointment.

We all know that to make the most of your university experience you need to have studied, worked hard, and committed to learning the content taught in your high school courses. However, we also know that confidence in your preparation is also important. We want you to feel confident in your ability to succeed at University. This spring’s COVID-19 situation has caused disruption to the school year that may make some students feel anxious about their preparation. We hope that these courses will help students feel more prepared for starting their program, regardless of where they begin their university program.
